My name is Chris König, a 23 years old self-taught photographer, based in The Netherlands. This story is about my one week adventure in the Italian Dolomites, in which I tried to challenge myself, not only on a photography level, but on a personal level as well. I crawled through 2 meters deep snow, I sweat so much I thought there was no water left in me and I climbed for so long that it felt like my legs left me halfway through already. It was all absolutely worth it :)
It is very easy to be distracted from what you do, even if you are truly passionate about what you do. For example, when I am planning new photoshoots for my portfolio, I find it very easy to just postpone it until I kind of forget about it, even though I still love to shoot every day! Kind of strange how this works, but in order to fight this, I decided to just book a trip to Italy, to explore the mountains by myself and make use of this opportunity to come back with some new work. Not only as an addition to my portfolio, but to improve my improvising skills by making the most out of the unexpected and rather uncomfortable situations.
